Bios Hard Disk Password

Fujitsu 3D Accelerator built in to this Acer notebook detected this notebook fell. When powering on, the notebook now asks for hard drive password. Acer Technical Support says the default passwords are "acer" and "000000" but neither works. Any ideas?

The best way is to try and reset your CMOS. This a chip inside which holds the password details. If you feel comfortable enough, open up your laptop and look for a battery (try under the keyboard), similar to one in a watch. Unplug this, and leave it for 10 seconds and then try plugging it back in. If this doesn’t work, call Fujitsu up and in some cases they can give you an administrator password to override this issue.

Best of luck

When i power on the laptop ask HDD PASSWORD SIR PLZ HOW CAN I REMOVE SIR


How to remove and unlock hard drive password? Is there any software to recover hard drive disk password? Where to download hard drive password cracker? Is it possible to reset the hard drive password?
According to Lenovo and many other manufacturers' website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.

Aspire One N214 Model # ZG5 keeps showing me a Acer screen before informing me that I have a Media test failure and that it has no bootable device. I have no boot disk it asks for, Please help me!


The media failure means either the hard disk has failed and therefore cannot boot up the notebook.
Try reseating the hard drive first, so it makes proper electrical contact. If it still fails to boot up, then go to the BIOS setup and check to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic program, if so then run this program to check the hard disk. If the hard disk is faulty, then a new hard disk is needed and install Windows on this hard disk plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs to get a working computer again.

Bios not find hard disk


If the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.

1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

MY ACER ZG5 KEEPS ASKING ME FOR HARDWARE SECURITY?? ALL I DID WAS NOT REMEMBER MY PASSWORD, TOUCHED ONE OR TWO THINGS... BOOM! HARDDISK SECURITY COMES UP?


The BIOS (basic input output system) is a chip that stores the configuration of the laptop and this information needs a battery to keep it stored in its memory. The stored info, consists of The date & time, the amount of RAM (memory), the hard disk type & size, configuration of the parralel & serial ports, passwords etc.
Some passwords are not stored in the BIOS, such as the hard disk password.
The hard disk password is setup from the BIOS configuration and it can be removed using the BIOS configuration, but you need to know the password to do this, or you just enter the password to access the data on the hard disk. This password is used to prevent unauthorized access to data on the hard disk.
There are no backdoor passwords you can use and moving the hard disk into another computer will not allow you access to the data on that hard disk.
